With a move to Nelson in 2016, Stephanie shifted into a new phase of her artistic career. After graduating from art/design institutes in New Brunswick and completing courses at NSCAD in her native Nova Scotia, she worked for a number of production companies, most notably Cirque du Soleil. She transitioned over time from her textile foundation and figurative paintings to photography and lit sculptures.
Passage, a piece that beautifully showcases the intersection of Stephanie’s technical and artistic abilities, was inspired by her intense feeling of awe and perspective seeing the Kootenay mountains and wildlife for the first time.
